Further Timetable Updates Due To Coronavirus

Newport Transport - Friday, April 03, 2020

From Monday the 6th of April. we are introducing further reductions to our service timetable. The services will run Monday to Saturday only at the exception the 60 service Monmouth that will operate Monday to Friday.

We are determined to keep on providing transportation for keyworkers and for essential travel despite an understandable heavy reduction in passenger numbers. When reviewing the timetable, we took into consideration the travelling needs of people going to work. Download the timetable listing here

We will also carry on with offering FREE alternative transport to NHS and emergency services personnel who live in Newport and Cwmbran where the bus service times do not suit. The NHS personnel who needs to use our alternative travel arrangements can get in touch, providing a telephone number, pick up point, place of work and shift times either via email to nhs-support@newporttransport.co.uk or phone on 01633 211 202.

Newport Bus also ask its passenger to respect the following social distancing measures on its services. The driving staff will only allow 50% of the seating capacity to be utilised. We ask customers not to sit together and to refrain from using the seats directly behind the driver.

Operating on Saturday timetable

Newport Transport - Wednesday, March 18, 2020

From Monday 23rd of March, we will be operating on Saturday timetables due the reduced demand on all our network, and staff availability.

As a result of increased homeworking and government advice on avoiding non-essential travel, the demand on bus services has reduced. Therefore, Newport Bus has decided to operate Saturday timetables across its 43 routes from Monday 23rd of March. Normal weekend services will apply on Saturdays and Sundays.

Scott Pearson Managing Director stated “These are completely unprecedented times, but we will maintain bus services for our customers for as long as we are able to, while carefully following Governmental guidelines. I want to take this opportunity to thank all the staff at Newport Transport for doing an amazing job in very difficult conditions and thank our customers for their patience and understanding as we navigate through these challenges.”

The Customer Service Centre at our Head Office on Corporation Road will be closed to customers from Monday 23rd March; however, our Travel Centre in Friars Walk Bus Station will remain open but please check our website for up to date opening times.

A statement plus questions and answers on the disruptions to the Newport Bus services can be found on the Newport Bus website. This will be kept updated; however, for the latest traffic updates, we recommend people to follow the company official Twitter or Facebook pages @NewportBus.

All of the timetables can be found on the website www.newportbus.co.uk/journey-planner or on the Traveline Cymru website (www.traveline.cymru).
